The Wine: Zinfandel 2016(from Les Lunes Wine's website)
A true bastion of California wine, Zinfandel was widely planted by Italian-Americans throughout California. Hailing from the Venturi Vineyard just north of Ukiah in Mendocino County, this Zinfandel captures the rich history and tradition of California viticulture with complexity, elegance and depth that only come with old-vine vineyards. This wine captures the brambly and brash spirit of Zinfandel while maintaining excellent elegance, balance and freshness.

The Producer: Les Lunes Wine
At Les Lunes Wine we lease our own vineyards, work our own vines and built our own cellar. We're blazing our own trail like the pioneering winemakers of California. Our goal is to grow wines that pay respect to the great wines of California’s past.
We do very little in the cellar because we spend time in our vineyards. Proper pruning, precise suckering, well-timed treatments, and thoughtful weed management let us minimize the pesticide inputs in our vineyards. We do this to preserve the indigenous microbes on the grapes and in the soils, which leads to healthier and more complex wines that don’t need adjusting or stabilizing.
Our goal year in and year out is to bring you a unique taste of the distinct times and places which we love and tend. The care that we bring through the entire winegrowing process shines through into the final product. Our wines are balanced in their youth, but the care we invest in the winegrowing will continue to reverberate in your cellar for years to come.
